Long Listed

I've cut down on poetry competition entries this year but here's a bit of good(ish) news from one I entered earlier. This is the Cinnamon Press Poetry Collection Award. The money prize is small but the winner does get a volume of poetry published. Not me, but I did get on the long list. I see Kate Dempsey's name there also - well done!

I had to check my competitions spreadsheet to see what I had entered - ten random poems I thought might impress, not any kind of sequence. The results and lists are not on the website yet as far as I can see.

We are finally delighted to announce that the winner of the £100 prize and contract for the publication of her first collection is Louise Warren, whose collection, A Child’s Last Picture Book of the Zoo, will be published in July 2012. All short-listed poets together with those in the narrowed down long-list will have work in the winners’ anthology. This will be a combined anthology also featuring the winners of the short story competition: A Roof of Red Tiles & other stories & poems will be published in April 2011 and all entrants will receive a copy.
